saves the entire game (plus all expansion campaigns) in one big guildwars.dat file, so that's my largest file. I recently noticed that I couldn't put it on my FAT32 formatted external drive so it must be at least 4 GB.
I always wrote "09" instead of "9" or "2009" so yes, now I will simply be writing 10. I write 0's before the months and days as well if they are single digits. So I write today's date as 04/01/10. (because it's the 4th already over here in europe and we write the days before the months, the way god intended it)
during this year's big UK politicians expenses scandal? All citizens could look over the lists of expenses and find the abuses. I'm not from the UK, so I don't know how this story ended, perhaps somebody from the UK could fill me in?
Well, at the very least the best pizza I've ever had was in Naples, not because it's "supposed to be" but because it tasted amazing. Then again, de gustibus et coloribus non disputandum est.
and anybody who disagrees has never been to Naples
An anonymous reader writes "Nintendo is investigating potential copyright infringement by Nokia during some video demos of their N900 phone, which can be seen emulating Nintendo games. Nintendo spokesman Robert Saunders says: 'We take rigorous steps to protect our IP and our legal team will examine this to determine if any infringement has taken place.' In the video, Nokia says, 'Most publishers allow individual title usage, provided that the user is in possession of the original title.'"
Welcome to my crib, here is the master bedroom, no plasma TV, but I've got some pretty sweet contact lenses in a drawer somewhere.
the german phrase "Mein Luftkissenfahrzeug ist voller Aale" was correctly translated as: "My hoovercraft is full of eels" However the Hungarian translation was completely wrong
But who would pay for "designing stuff?" Let's say you make a movie which costs 100 million $ to make, how can you recover those costs if not through the small contribution of 10$ from the millions of people who watch (consume?) that movie? I can't see any business model in which the illegal downloading of movies would not hurt the money that is available for "designing stuff." If there is one, then maybe you have found a solution for the entire problem of file-sharing?
Asterix was fishing when he was attacked by the Romans again? Where was Obelix? He'll win in the end, he always does.
The EU has half a billion (mostly rich) people living in an area half the size of Australia, this is an ideal situation for broadband development. If you look at just Sudan and DRC together, these are already larger than the 27 member states of the EU combined. I suspect that in Africa, just like everywhere else, relatively wealthy countries with a high population density will have the best broadband connections. (Egypt? South Africa?)
This is about foreign people returning to their home countries, that's just a diminishing of the brain drain towards the US. A real reverse brain drain would be if those people returned home AND all the best US born students left the US to study in Europe or Asia.
Yups, every "word" in a last name is capitalized in Flanders. So Ruud van Nistelrooy would have been Ruud Van Nistelrooy had he been born in Flanders.
Actually Belgium was a member of the security council in the past 2 years and next years president of the UN General Assembly will probably be Belgian as well, so you're not too far off from the truth. The pope even made one Belgian a saint yesterday. Also, I don't think Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are making movies about Belgian reporters with little white dogs because they want to. I think it's time for a belgians-are-taking-over-the-world (and space) conspiracy theory.
I see people with foldable bikes on the train every day. I haven't seen a foldable ELECTRIC bike yet though, but maybe they exist.
